of advertising. thank very much. >>> hillary clinton's tenure as the secretary of state officially ended a while ago. her last day on the job, though, was marred by a terror attack. we have the latest details on the u.s. embassy bombing. that's coming up. >>> and how does this sound? senator geraldo rivera? he says he's serious. you're going to hear why. >>> so john kerry officially the secretary of state. he was due to be sworn in just a few minutes ago at a private ceremony over at the state department. he has to deal with a crisis, though, from the first moments that he has taken this new job. a suicide bomber detonated a device outside the united states embassy in turkey's capital earlier today. it killed a turkish security guard. there is no doubt what kind of attack this was. >> a suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is an act of terror. it's a terrorist attack. >> this is an individual wearing a suicide vest trying to come into our embassy compound. >> hillary clinton says we live in what she described as complex and dangerous times. of course, today was her final day on the job
opportunity. have to go one of two ways. president clinton in his first year of his second term had specific but achievable things. children's health initiative. he did. balancing the budget. which he did. president bush, much deeper. said a lot of things, but mostly said, let's fundamentally challenge social security. unable to get that. this president in the inaugural address was more in the bush model. he was throwing very, very deep in the inaugural. >> this president is engaged in some very canny tactics. he's launching a lot of ideas. especially on guns, for example. where he must know he probably can't get it. >> can get something. maybe not necessarily everything. >> probably very little through congress. >> background checks? >> i would doubt it. i think what he things he's doing is he thinks it doesn't matter. what i'm doing is elbowing my opponents to the marches. they may be able to win on congress. i will win on tv. because the american people are for these things even if congress is not. the more congress opposes me, the more marginal they look. you can see something similar go
from texas who has stumbled a bit. rubio has been more of the barack obama and hillary clinton model. he's been careful about how he uses that star power and also his opponent is probably paul ryan, who i thought gave a very weak speech at the national review institute. rubio is coming with new ideas and new ideas that will move his party to the center. outstanding choice. >> on immigration reform, he's joined forces with some democrats, comprehensive immigration reform. senator vitter of louisiana calls him naive. so he's getting some criticism from the right. >> naive for some means hopeful and optimistic for others and i think that's what some republicans have been lacking. we've been painted in the times, rightly so, that we're only the guys in suits and business men in an old world. are we the party for everyone? do we have an offer of better way for everyone in the united states, not just our alleged 53% which we didn't even have? and rubio, i think, speaks to that. >> he's got to be really careful in giving that republican response to the president's state of the union address
of the less partisan positions. we saw it from bill clinton to barack obama, who have often reached out to put somebody in from the other party. which of course is what barack obama is doing. as i said, people against him in the hearing are likely not going to be the ones he is looking to as secretary as allies, to begin with. but generally this is a position that works across the aisle because of the position of the military. >> and he is a man without a home. because he is a republican in name, republicans don't think he is much of a republican. democrats, a lot of them don't -- they're not flthrilled with him because of the israeli comments. but he has to reach out to both sides of the aisle. >> he has work to do. let's talk about the economy and how it potentially could impact the president's political strength this year going into his second term. 157,000 jobs created in january. you take a look at the -- a lot of jobs created last year. still not moving. the economic growth as much as should -- but if you take a look at the jobs that have been created, you take a look at the dow jones. 1
and influential senator, a republican icon who voted to impeach president clinton over the lewinsky scandal. >> mr. domenici, guilty. >> he says truthfulness is the first pillar of a good character. >> i think there's an element of hypocrisy, no question. >> reporter: matt cooper says that now because we're finding out while domenici was blasting bill clinton, he was hiding from everyone, including his own family, that he fathered a child out of wedlock several years early and with the daughter of another republican legend, former republican senator paul laxalt. pete domenici has said that he's aware of this for several months. my past action has caused hurt and disappointment to my wife, children, family, and others. i deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. >> what do you make about the revelation and the timing so many years later? >> it seems like someone forced their hands. someone was going to write about it. so they thought they would come out and be forthright about it. >> indeed, michelle laxalt says, recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be tw
back to the clinton white house when he worked there at that time and he's not the type -- he likes to talk, as you point out, but he doesn't make any brutal threats, anything along those lines or anything like that. bob wood dlds ward, one of the premier, if not the premier washington journal reporters. we invited them, by the way, to come in here to "the situation room" and have a little peacemaking session and they declined. good news coming out of all of this, gene sperling will be candy crowley's guest on the state of the union address. we'll tie up all of the loose ends at the same time. both very, very good guys, gene sperling and bob woodward and i'm sure before too long the two of them will be having dinner at a fansing washington here in washington making nice to each other. >> reporter: over an expensive bottle of wine, yes. >> thanks jessica yellin for that. >>> now we turn to the history making events at the vatican. where pope benedict xvi no longer is the leader of the 1.2 billion roman catholics. his resignation the first of any pope in nearly 600 years took effect a
the president and secretary of state clinton know about a cable from ambassador chris steves warning the danconsulate, quote, could sustain an assault. he strongly believes that the obama administration simply did not support the fragile libyan government enough in the early days. that led to a fragile security situation that he believes that, at the end of the day, contributed to this attack. >> as you know, getting the answers to these questions, part of the issue's involved chuck hagel. by now, there was supposed to be a new defense secretary. leon panetta was supposed to be already back in california. but all that is set back. what's the latest? what's going on with panetta? he's staying put, i take it, for the time being? >> reporter: he is staying in office and running the pentagon till hagel is confirmed. but not necessarily running the pentagon from right here. he went back to his california home over the weekend. he will travel this week to brussels for a nato summit. hagel was supposed to go to that summit. and then the big question is, after that, somewhere in the saturday
the state department? i don't know. as the saying goes, i have big heels to fill. >> hillary clinton, condoleezza rice, madeleine albright. he certainly, certainly does. we're getting new details about the shooting of a best-selling author. you're going to find out why the man being held for allegedly killing american sniper author chris kyle had to be tased in his jail cell. >>> plus, the story behind the presidential photo a lot of people seem to have an opinion on. ories. a new belt. some nylons. and what girl wouldn't need new shoes? and with all the points i've been earning, i was able to get us a flight to our favorite climbing spot even on a holiday weekend. ♪ things are definitely looking up.

on zun these are things left unsaid. >> remember the clinton coffees in the white house? >> yeah. we remember all of that. >> and this becomes more of a problem for this president because he was the one who came into office and said i'm going to be completely different. can't have lobbyists work for me. we're going to be untouched, purer than anybody else and so while he's not raising the money, people are getting a reward for giving the money. >> and that's the problem. it's not that what he's doing is any different than george w. bush, bill clinton, et cetera. it's that the barack obama of 2013 is not the barack obama of 2007. >> no. >> and if you haven't realized that by now, then i'm sorry to shatter that dream. >> all right. we'll see what happens on that front. guys, thank you very much. you're going to get a haircut? >> i have to get a haircut. >> i know you were supposed to get a haircut. >> thinking about that look. with a wolf blitzer beard. the combo. >> all right. maybe something could happen. >> i couldn't do it. it's patchy. >> all right, guys. thanks very much. >>> up
there as well. they love basketball. you know what? when madeleine albright went to pyongyang during the clinton administration one of the gifts she presented kim jong-un's father, kim jong-il, she brought a basketball signed by michael jordan to north korea and that basketball by all accounts i heard it when i was there and a lot of north koreans have pointed it out, they venerate, they love michael jordan. they love basketball. kim jong-il the father really loved it. the son obviously loves it as well. so there is a certain logic to why dennis rodman and the harlem globetrotters are in pyongyang right now. >> you know what i bet anything too they will get a basketball and have all of those players sign so the same way they have the michael jordan basketball they will have this glob trotters, harlem globetrotters basketball side-by-side. >> kim jong-il now the dead father he loved that basketball. madeline albright, i invited her to come on the show today to talk about when she presented that basketball to kim jong-il. kim jong-un now has dennis rodman in pyongyang. we're keeping a close eye on
implications. >> every second term, when we covered, bill clinton, the first term was one thing, second term, another thing. george w. bush, second term, gloria, pick it up you're a lot more free to do stuff that you really want to do. >> you are. but i'm also surprised at people being shocked that politics is being injected into the oscars. i think the oscars are pretty political. i think these movies were pretty political. i think it was a statement coming from the white house. and yes, i think they're going to be more integrated in our culture and she is more relaxed and why not and, you know, i think the question that lots of conservatives were asking that i saw is would hollywood have invited laura bush. would hollywood have invited barbara bush. would hollywood -- i believe hollywood probably would have invited nancy reagan if they could have thought of it. >> others make the point, look, in washington, gun control's an issue now. there's a lot bashing of hollywood right now over gun control. what is the white house's position right now? >> and let the first lady have some fun. she's e
secretary of state, hillary clinton, who already made it out the door. >> it is probably a good thing at this point in time that we have a chance to get some damn rest. >> but as panetta was saying good-bye -- >> on this vote, the yes are 58 and the nays are 62. >> falling short of the votes needed to break a filibuster. keeping panetta, for now, from his retirement. but not from his immediate plans. panetta flew home to his california walnut farm as he does on many weekends. on tuesday, he comes back to washington and then on to brus brussels for a nato summit. on friday, he returns. but will he go back to work at the pentagon or go back home? >> leon panetta is never fully checked out. there's nothing going unsecure. there's no lapse in power structure at the pentagon. >> panetta still gets daily briefings, updates on the war in afghanistan and signs deployment orders but president obama wants the new guy. >> i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan and i need a secretary of defense. >> but if hagel gets confirmed, can he work with congress after the bruising nomination fight?
has brought in bill clinton to bring in a word to it, and talk about how true to life politically it s. so who knows, who knows what kind of flesh clinton press sort so to speak. >> well, david, i want to ask you about another snub, best supporting actor category, and performance they would say is the performance of the year got nada, zippo, and look at this clip. >> in part of london. no one has yet claimed responsibility for what sources are calling a cyber terrorist assault on the british secret service. early reports from the scene indicate at least six dead, many more injured, with victims being evacuated to local hospitals within minutes of the explosion. >> david, you just saw the performance. wolf blitzer. outrage! i cannot believe this. there is a write-in campaign? >> there really ought to be a special award. >> it was a critical moment in that film too, "skyfall," a film that grossed over $1 billion at the box office. i had a major contributing little role over there, didn't i? >> agree, and i think you see daniel craig's expression when he hears that that was off you. >> ex
assisting hillary clinton in her good-bye tour and you saw a president who really was thanking her for not leaking. and what we also see in this is that foreign policy is really run from the white house and not from anywhere else. this is a very white house centric national security team and i think that the president is, of course, first among equals. if you look at those people up on the screen, wolf, it is the president of the united states who made that decision on osama bin laden, hillary clinton and leon panetta wanted to arm the rebels and it was the president who decided differently. so it's very much center data. >> the president of the united states, who makes a decision over rejecting the advice, in the end it's up to him. >> of course it's up to him. what modern presidents center their policy in the white house and if the president is making decisions about his to him is who are the people next to him? and cabinets over the last decade or two, you have strong members of cabinets, no doubt about it. but the policymaking, more and more centered out of that oval office an
was a white house correspondent, seven years during the clinton administration, we used to complain all the time about access. so the criticism that we're hearing right now is to a certain degree, nothing new. >> there's no doubt we're a whiney, needy bunch in the white house when i covered it. you're always complaining and you always want more access. i think the thing people need to be worried about is you think, every new president follows what the previous administration did. so they're going to continue to use more and more controls. and technology has essentially tipped the powers of the balance to the government toward the media. so you might love barack obama and you might want to look at those great pictures of him looking very pensive and in control now, and you might want the content that the government's producing and wants you to see and think about when you're digesting stories. but what about when you have a president you don't trust or actually might be up to nefarious activities? the more that there's not a press that could ask tough questions, be in front of the questi
? and as this source pointed out, look, they wanted hillary clinton to testify on benghazi, they got her. they wanted the timeline supplied to them about what the president knew, who he speak to and when, they said they've now gotten that. so they believe and another source described it to me this way, they believe that they just want to be vindictive, that this is now about president obama and that in the end if they continue this, they will look petty, as one source put it. >> and i just want to be precise, dana bash, this vote is still continuing. we don't know if the vote has failed or succeeded or what's going on. but we assume that there aren't -- what you're hearing is that there aren't probably five republicans who will join 55 democrats in breaking this filibuster? >> reporter: that's right. going in, the democrats did not think that they had the 60 votes and we could only potentially find three republicans who were going to agree to stop this filibuster but we probably will see this any minute. the vote is technically over but sometimes they have to wait for senators to come in to cast thei
, once more in the clinton administration when he was budget director. >> you're right, three times. >> i know a lot about jack lew. thank you very much. >>> over 4,000 people stranded with no power, no running water and limited food, and this isn't after a massive blizzard. this was supposed to be a vacation. we are gathered here today to celebrate the union of tim and laura. it's amazing how appreciative ople are when you tell them they could save a lot of money on their car insurance by switching to geico...they may even make you their best man. may i have the rings please? ah, helzberg diamonds. nice choice, mate. ...and now in the presence of these guests we join this loving couple. oh dear... geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. i'm here to pick up some cacti. it should be under stephens. the verizon share everything plan for small business. get a shareable pool of data... got enough joshua trees? ... on up to 25 devices. so you can spend less time... yea, the golden barrels... managing wireless costs and technology and more time driving your business poten
the federal government is moving. >> first, the defense of marriage act signed by president clinton and i'm sorry to say i didn't think that was a good move a. good law, or a constitutional law. that will be reviewed. >> that stipulated that marriage is between a man and a woman only. >> and that if a state recognizes it, that other states are not obligated to give full faith and credit to that act. i think it's plainly wrong and unconstitutional. the other one could be even bigger. proposition 8 in california was voted on by the citizens of california and denies equal rights to marry for gays. it's taken a dream team in the case against bush and ted olson the lawyer for that famous case have joined together. stand in line for that argument. these are the two greatest -- >> my little inclination -- and it's just an inclination -- that ad is designed to influence one, maybe two united states supreme court justices. they will be the deciding factor on this sensitive issue. we'll see what happens, guys. thanks very much. >> thank you. >>> coming up, this woman admits she voted more than once
hillary clinton and cia director david petraeus made the proposal, but it was rejected. today, both the defense secretary and joint chiefs chairman said they also backed the plan. the white house is not commenting, but in the past, has raised concerns about weapons getting into the hands of extremists. >>> other news we're watching, boeing's grounded 787 dreamliner is getting a bit of a lift today. the faa is announcing it will allow boeing to make test flighting to gather more data about the plane's batteries and electrical systems. meanwhile, federal safety officials say a battery that short circuited caused the fire on board a dreamliner in january. that sent the temperature inside the battery case to more than 500 degrees. investigators do not know, though, why it short circuited. >>> and president obama carried on a tradition today and joined senate and house prayer groups at the national prayer breakfast. it's a brief pause in the political brinksmanship here in washington. it is the fifth time the president has made an appearance and he said he often looks to scripture to be
